Santa Rosa, CA – Representatives from the Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) Foundation and SRJC High School Equivalency Program (HEP) were delighted to receive a “community grant” from Impact 100 Redwood Circle members on Friday, December 16th for $5,000. 

The HEP Program helps migrant and seasonal agricultural workers and their immediate family members achieve high school equivalency certificates. Subsequently, HEP students gain improved employment, enroll in post-secondary education or enlist in military services. The Impact 100 Redwood Circle funds will be used to support students beginning their first semester of college at SRJC with book and parking vouchers.

Impact 100 is a Sonoma County women’s giving circle which empowers and enables local women to serve as philanthropic leaders by collectively funding significant grants that will make a lasting impact in our community.
